"A short vocabulary of some words and names used by the French authors, which are not generally understood by the English that understand the French language, and may therefore be useful to those that intend to read the French accounts, or compare them with the accounts now published", p. xi-xiii, printed in parallel columns, gives the names used by the French for the tribes of the Five Nations compared to the names used by the English or the Five Nations tribes, also known as the Iroquois Confederacy including the old Five Nations of New York, the Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, and Seneca peoples
